New York Trump Tower fire put out

New York Trump Tower fire put out

At its peak, flames raged from the windows as crumbling pieces of ashen materials could be seen falling from the glass skyscraper onto the pavement below.

"We found fire on the 50th floor of the building. If you look at the fire deaths in NY, nearly all of them are in one-or two-family houses". As you can imagine, the apartment is quite large, we are 50 stories up.

Firefighters remained at the scene Sunday, cleaning up after the blaze and trying to determine its cause.

Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said Secret Service agents accompanied firefighters to check on the Trump residence.

The New York Fire Department responded to a four-alarm fire on the 50th floor of the building shortly before 6 p.m. on Saturday.Three firefighters have sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Donald Trump called the man who died in a fire at the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York a "crazy Jew" over two decades ago, the New York Daily News reported.

'Very confined (well built building).

Almost 20 years ago, the man who was one of the biggest real estate moguls in the city lobbied against legislation that said sprinklers needed to be installed in all residential buildings. Firemen (and women) did a great job.

Nigro said the fire broke out at around 5:30 p.m. and fire engines and ladders were there within five minutes.

Newsweek reports that back in 1999, Trump had asked city officials to block legislation that would have required high-rise residential buildings to be equipped with sprinklers. His apartment, 50C, which is a little more than ten floors below President Trump's penthouse, was valued at $2.5 million.

This building was constructed before the code required fire sprinklers, like many in the U.S. One resident, who happens to be friends with Michael Cohen, said he received a message from the president's lawyer to leave.

Opened in 1983, the mixed-use skyscraper is a jewel in The Trump Organisation's real estate portfolio that includes high-end properties, hotels and golf courses. The thing is President Donald Trump never reportedly installed sprinklers on the residential floors of the building because they were apparently too expensive.
